Battery rectifier

Hello, we need a battery rectifier for our company and I would like to have your help. I have been seeing several brands and at the moment the most interesting is the brand Amperis.
What do you think?

Thanks a lot!

    Hi Gustavo-

    That Amperis rectifier looks good to me. What are your requirements?  Voltage/current/type of batteries/type of load, etc?

    Once we have a better feel for what you need to accomplish, our team of experts or some of the other readers might be able to offer some comments.

    Thanks for reply me Rick!

    My requirements are:


    Current: 200A,

    Batteries: Gel, fast charge

    I saw in  the Amperis ASR solution and looks prety good.

    What is the load?  Is this for a telephone central office?

    Yes!! You got it right!

    I think the Amperis recitifer is very good, but have you considered a modular rectifier that consists of several smaller units in parallel?  This gives you better failure tolerance and good future expandability.  As an example, look here:  

    Athough that particular recitifier is for single phose input, they also have three-phase models.  There are several companies that make modular rectifiers like this.

    It seems to be a valid option too, we will consider it!

    Many thanks Rick
